Right got me GC, now I need someone reliable and near to me who can help and possibly hold my hand while I change the fluids in "Daisy":lol::lol:

I have very little experience in any maintenance duties but am willing to earn.

Re: Fluids
There are so many resources available for that vehicle and you might find it beneficial to pick up a repair manual that can walk you through the simpler repairs.

You will get a lot more out doing repairs yourself but be sure to do it safely.

Re: Fluids
As JDM12 stated, do it safely and know what you are doing. Otherwise a simple task could finally cost you a lot of money.

Re: Fluids
They're all relatively easy mate. Some are a bugger for access etc, but certainly do able, you just need patience. You will pick up most of the fluid at the dealer. Can be a bitch to get anywhere else and even when you can, there's very little difference in price.

Some fluids like power steering and transfer case, you will have to ceck with the dealer as to what ones you need. There are two different types of steering fluid and transfer fluid for example. Give the dealer your VIN and they'll tell you.

If you fancy a trip this far North, you're more than welcome to stop by. Or get in touch and I'll do my best to talk you through it.

Re: Fluids
I always recommend that folks buy the actual OEM shop manual. It has TONS more info about your particular truck than a Haynes manual would and walks you through just about anything. Not sure how available the are over on your side of the pond, but e-bay is a good place to look for them.

Re: Fluids
Like everyone is telling you a Service Manual would be the best bet. Especially if you want to start doing work yourself on your WJ. Here is a link to get the factory service manual -

Here is mine @ 2004 Grand Cherokee 4.7 HO V8 (if you have the same go here) -

They are 110 buck of endless information. Pretty much how to take apart and replace and put back almost any items on the WJ....
